I watched that also. And while Sting does not fault Rollins, and I also don't blame him for what happened the fact that they didn't think twice about the second one was a bit odd to me.
I have never been as high on Sting as others, but there was fantasy booking potential we missed out on. Mainly he vs Taker could have been fun.
Yeah im not gonna crucify Seth for it, but I absolutely do NOT understand why he would do another one when he knows that's what messed him up in the first place. He even had a few mins to think about it and still did it again, I dont get it.

That was hilarious. We even got a famous ''F you'' from Cornette to Meltzer.

haha Yeah, the fame has gone to his head. Big Dave jumped the shark once more. :D

I'd usually say heat of the moment but that still doesn't excuse any heat of the moment incident that puts a life at risk.

I'll just call Seth an idiot instead. His twitter rantings lend credit to my prediction.

What will that be though?
Did you see both PPV's? Thoughts?
They have did it once or twice before but I seem to recall them not airing the entire card. Basically its a house show that they pull out all the stops for and end with a cage match.


According to cbssports the card is. With only Rusev and womens tag being aired. Maybe later they show the entire thing? I cant recall much the other ones.
  • Universal Championship: Bray Wyatt (c) vs. Braun Strowman (Steel cage match)
  • Roman Reigns vs. Baron Corbin
  • Seth Rollins vs. Erick Rowan
  • Women's Tag Team Championship: The Kabuki Warriors (c) vs. Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Bayley & Sasha Banks vs. Alexa Bliss & Nikki Cross (Live on WWE Network)
  • Intercontinental Championship: Shinsuke Nakmaura (c) & Sami Zayn vs. The Miz (handicap match)
  • AJ Styles vs. Kevin Owens
  • SmackDown Tag Team Championship: The New Day (c) vs. The Revival
  • Rusev vs. Bobby Lashley (Last man standing match; live on WWE Network)

What are your thoughts on Rhea Ripley? Just the way they were talking about her on the observer. ''Can't miss superstar'' ''she can do good stuff.'' ''She's got it.''

Anyone watch the Austin thing after with Taker? Dude seemed super chill and cool, and lead some insight into some things that happened. Claims somewhere in his match with brock when the streak ended he got a concussion and forgot everything from that day. Said he went back and watched it plenty of times and cant even tell when it happened. Scary to think about. Hopefully these Austin shows keep going as I cant enough of him talking to theses guys.

WWE network also needs to create an APA show where it just Ron and JBL bringing on some other guest to BS and drink beers that table for 3 episode with them and teddy long was great.
Finally got round to watching it this morning. I could have listened to them for hours more. It was a great interview. Like Steve said, it was like they were only scratching the surface. Undertaker is so cool. :cool: Fascinating listening to him talking about fear of becoming parody of himself. I had heard that line before about ''nobody will pay to watch you wrestle.'' Fair to say that prediction was not very accurate. haha Jake Roberts passing along some vital intel. Loved the interview.

They are saying he is the number one merch seller. And after selling all of these (which I'm sure they will) they can add 3.5 mill to that total.

I didn't buy that belt but I did buy a modern day maharaja shirt last week :)
Heard the same this morning after the Funhouse on SD 3x last friday.

Curious, would anyone pay xtra for a WWE VOD pkg that shows every house show, like NJPW World?

I wouldn't pay for that personally. Just too much for me to consume. I barely watch anything now as it is.

I like whats happeneing on Raw. The slow Rollins heel turn is good. AOP is money in this role. Speakin in foreign languages and when Charly asks for translation they just say "Charly, you look wonderful tonight". That is true becuase Charly always looks wonderful.

Lashley getting taken off by the cops because he bumped them, Lana slapping a cop and threating to sue everyone. Good stuff and the eventual Lashley vs Rusev match should be a good one.

Flair and Asuka in the ring together is money. No other womens match they can put on can come close to them.

What I don't like is the tag team champs still doing non title squash matches. WTF is that.

She is a very large woman (tall and wide back) that can move and has charisma. Still a bit protected at the moment, but yea the sky seems to be the limit. But she is so much bigger than the majority of the females that booking her as a baby face and having her come from behind all the time will get old. How many times as a face can you overcome 2 and 3 on 1s which is what it would take to make it look like she could lose.

Why would Rhea be a babyface?

I really only see two moves. Stupid Slingblade and double leg drop kicks/stomps.

Kyle Busch 24/7 champ. Stupid, but that what this title is.

Surprised they let Dakota Kai call Yim a "hoodrat". But NXT was decent and are setting up a few good shows in the future.

AEW I cant get into. Besides Pentagon and Fenix I just don't care enough about any of those guys. I think Jericho as their champ hurts, especially for any casual fans. His last few years of WWE he was comedy relief with the list or fueding with owens. Well out of reach of the title picture.

Some WWE merry Christmas releases

Sin Cara
Luke Harper
The Ascension

Not sure on The Ascension and Sin Cara but I do know that Luke Harper has wanted out for a long time. Probably the best Christmas gift he could ask for.
